Counseling Appointments

The Office of Career & Alumni Services offers career-counseling services to students and alumni. Counseling appointments provide students with information about the legal employment process. They also provide our office with an opportunity to meet students one-on-one and learn about their career goals. We encourage students to make appointments for resume or cover letter review, mock interviews, career guidance, and any other aspect of the job search.

Due to NALP regulations, first-year students are not eligible to receive one-on-one counseling until November 1. First year students are encouraged to attend Career Services Programs and use this time to create a resume and cover letter. After November 1, first-year students will be able to make an appointment to review their resume and cover letter with our office.

Mock Interviews

A mock interview is a 45-minute individual session with our office to help you prepare and strategize for future interviews. You will be asked to respond to a series of questions, just like in a real interview. After the interview, you will be given constructive feedback regarding your interviewing style and how you respond to the questions.

Career Services also hosts mock interview events, where members of the local legal community conduct practice interviews with the students.

Workshops and Seminars

Careers Services offers a variety of workshops and seminars on job searches, improving interview skills, and career options. Students should watch their emails for news of upcoming events. A calendar of events is also available on our homepagePathFinder, and in the Career and Alumni Services Office.

Reciprocity

Career Services is able to assist you in exploring career opportunities across the country. Reciprocity allows you to use the career resources services of another law school.  All requests must be coordinated through our office.  Once you are granted reciprocity by the other school, you may use that school’s services according to the terms of its reciprocity policy.

Résumé Forwarding Service

Each year we contact prospective employers throughout the United States and invite them to recruit on campus. Some employers will come on campus to conduct interviews, while others will ask that we forward resumes directly to them. To facilitate the application process with these employers, résumés of interested students are collected and forwarded, to employers, on an assigned date. Information about OCI and RC can be found on PathFinder.

Job Posting

Job listings that we receive from prospective employers are posted on PathFinder. If you are interested in these positions, you should apply directly to the employer unless it is otherwise noted.

There are also several bulletin boards dedicated to legal career positions located in the Career Services office. Additional information is available on PathFinder, MartinDale or Vault (students must first log onto PathFinder before they can access Vault).

Office Library

Resources in the Career and Alumni Services Department include general career reference materials, job search manuals, directories on federal and specialty employment, judicial clerkships and fellowships.  We also have the NALP Directory of Legal Employers, a computer terminal for career research, and many other books and helpful guides. Seminars, events, current writing competitions, and summer programs are posted on our bulletin boards.

Equal Opportunity Statement

Regent University School of Law firmly expects that employers will observe the principles of non-discrimination and equality of opportunity with respect to classifications protected by law, in regard to hiring, promotion, retention and conditions of employment.
